International women's day 2018 Press for progress
We're supporting the international call to press forward and progress gender equality
Striving for gender balance
We’re passionate about achieving a better gender balance in our organisation and in the financial industry as a whole. We want to work together to ensure that we have an industry where women feel included and can contribute their best.
For us, having a balanced workforce helps us to unlock innovation, make better decisions, manage risk and deliver our business strategy by serving our diverse client base better.

Equality in the workplace Diversity and inclusion is critical to our future success
We're passionate about promoting equality in the workplace and have a number of policies and commitments that support women.
Women in Finance Charter
We’ve pledged to help make our industry one where women want to work and have committed to have women occupy 30% of the top four levels of our senior roles by 2020, up from 26% today.
Fair policies and processes
We have global flexible working practices and increased benefits for new parents. We also train staff on unconscious bias and have introduced safety initiatives to support staff in countries with a history of heightened violence against women.
Networks and programme
Our women’s network aims to promote gender equality in the workplace and beyond. We're also passionate about empowering adolescent girls with the confidence, knowledge and skills they need to fulfil their potential.
